Twenty-five students with

the boarding club. The feasts ar 
under the auspices of Wartburg' 
chef, “Russ” Redfield. 

Sigmund Sandrock, master of 
ceremonies, opened the party by 
leading the group in singing 
"Happy Birthday. ’ Mr. Sandrock 
then introduced Mr. Richard Wall,

floor with no decision. Landgrebe

round Leeseberg teamed \rtth 
Schick and won the overwhelm¬ 
ing victory over Plattertlle. In the 
meantime Landgrebe and Orth 
were taking the measure of an¬ 
other Maquoketa team. In the last 
round Strempke and Schick lost 
to a Platteville team while Leese¬

day in a blaze of glory over Du¬

I Schick and Martin Leeseberg 
teamed together to roll up the 
largest score of any Wartburg 
combination, beating one of the 
Platteville State Teachers college 
squads two hundred thirty-one

Strempke and Edwin Schick 
fought Coe to a standstill in a 
non-dccision debate. The smooth

afternoon Strempke and S^ck 
lost a close battle to another of 
the PlatteNnlle Teachers teams. 

The three veterans from last 
year showed that they hadn’t fo-- 
gotten anything and that they are 
ready to win debates during the 
coming season. The bluest sur¬

performance of the two untried

LET US GIVE THANKS! 

Thursday of this week again finds us celebrating the 
annual Thanksgiving Day. This custom of setting aside a na¬ 
tional day of thanksgiving has come down to us from the day! 
of our Pilgrim fathers at Plymouth Rock. The lives of these' 
men, women, and children were periled constantly by Indians,! 
by sickness, by starvation, by cold: yet their spirit of Thanks-' 
ghing for the blessings which God had bestowed on them' 
shines on down to this day! We should be ashamed of our 
selfishness at times and our ingratitude as compared to the; 
Pilgrim fathers. 

In particular we should be thankful for the comparative! 
peace and freedom in our own United States! ; 

Consider the troubled times in war torn Poland, Ger-, 
many, and hTetherlands in Europe! Compare the struggles of i 
the masses in China in Asia! Yet we take things for granted. 
and just live, forgetting that we should be thankful for our 
parents, our friends, our religious freedom and everything 
else which we prize highly. 

For all this and much more let us “give thanks unto the 
Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth forever.” And 
with our thanks to God let us also add a prayer that this 
fair land may long remain a prosperous, peaceful nation!

PLEASE, PROFESSORS! 

The week before the Christmas holidays is always one 
of the best in the school year. It is then that students can 
enjoy together the true Christmas spirit that comes to every 
Christian. It is then that we have our annual Christmas 
party, our candlelight services, special progi-ams, and carol¬ 
ing. It is then that we can really enjoy the Christian friend¬ 
ships that Wartburg makes possible. 

During the last week before Christmas, such things as 
grades are of secondary importance to any average student. 
He'should not be made to spend this time in cramming for 
last-minute examinations. 

Please, professors, take it easy on us during our last 
week. It surely is possible to arrange tests so that they can 
be given the week before the usual time. In no small measure 
does our “Christmas spirit” depend upon you.

One of the most pleasant or unpleasant aspects of a 
college is always the condition of its campus. "Charlie” Pich-

preparing our campus for a hard winter, so that it may be 
more beautiful than ever next spring. All of us know, how¬ 
ever, that a campus can never be beautiful if innumerable 
paths are worn between all the buildings.

Dreaming Dreams 
But Oh, Reality! 
Such Is Life! 

By E, J, Comils 

Sucli plans I had, lying there 
on a cot in Grossmann. Basltetball 
season was approaching and how 
easy it was to picture myself glid¬ 
ing over the smooth floor with the 
grace of a gazell? and the speed 
of a doe in flight. 

Pivots and passos-svere executed 
with snap and deception. The un¬ 
canny accuracy of the field shots 
and the agility of popping i 
short shots really surprised 
Ij-ing there dreaming. After all 1 
was in good liealth and sml en¬ 
joying a certain degree of youth. I 
could afford the time so I decided 
to answer Coach’s first call for 
practice. 

Alas and alack, there was my 
great mistake for today as I look 
back I choke with remorse at the 
outcome. My ankle bones don’t 
seem to meet my feet anymore 
and the tendons feel like long, wet 
pieces of strings. My chest feels 
fine (hch. heh), those lungs feel 
as if they are filled wiUi scoop- 
luls of burning leaves and mV nos¬ 
trils as if I had been sniffing sand 
like a beagle hound. 

My right ear is s\vollen and it’s 
not from the air whistling around 
it either. Someone jolted it with a 
blow that a butcher %vould use in 
felling a steer mercifully. Speak of 
your Indian firewalkers, my feet 
feel like I've been stomping 
around on broken Coca-Cola bot¬ 
tles from here to Shell Rock. 

My muscles are in great shape. 

I know they are still there because 
of the way they ache. I haven't 
measured myself yet but I think

By "Paganini” 
Con\x)cation Thursday, Nov. 
was devoted to a musical progiam 
given by some of Wartburg’s best 
talent. Presented by Student Body 
President “Ace" Schumacher, the 
program showed itself to be o 
of Warlburg's best so far th ,_ 
season; it was by far the most en¬ 
thusiastically 

Tlie fireworks was started by 
Lew Holm who played a plane 
solo, "Prelude in C Sharp Minor,” 
by Raclimaninoff. and for encore 
played "Garten Musick” by Nie¬ 
mann. This last number evidently 
was quite a strain on the poor boy 
for he found it necessary in the 
middle of the piece to stop and 
“nit a “whew” before continu- 

Then came one whom many of 
; heard for the first time, but 
whose talent is well kiiowm to 
most of the older students — the 
Gene Autry of Wartburg, Edwin 
"Cowboy” Reiehenberg, who ren¬ 
dered for us “The Letter Edged 
Black” and “I Love to Roam 
j out Yonder,” two popular cowboy 
; ballads. “Cowboy” accompanies 
all his songs on his guitar, which 
he plays with dexterous facility. 

Following, Ruth Mardorf and 
Gretchen Hanff favored us with a 
piano duet, “Country Gardens." 
by Percy Grainger. 

For the last number on the 
morning’s progi'am, we were in¬ 
troduced to one of Wartburg’s 
youngest and most popular musi¬ 
cal groups—the Trumpet Trio. 
This trio, consisting of Chuck 
Reimler, Jim Hughes, and Virgil 
Lagomarcino, and accompanied by 
Anhe Aardal, made its public de¬ 
but here and was most enthusiasti¬ 
cally received. In answer to the 
crowd’s continued pounding foi- an 
encore, it was learned that thei 
trio hadn't another piece worked! 

5 yet. i 

We were almost favored by an- i

that since Uie trio had no other! 
piece that Chuck play us a solo. | 
He agreed only on the condition!

SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 2S, 1939 — WAVERLY. IOWA 


Braulick,\Wagner, Doyen, | 
Hiltner Speak in Convocation 


Red Cross Pictures 
Shown; Friendship, 
and War Discussed. 

Pres. E. J. Braulick addressed 
Wartburg students and facultj’ on 
“Faith” during tire convocation 
period on Mondaj-, Nov. 13, basing 
his discourse on Math. 14; 23-26. 

President Braulick described 
faitlr as tV\e tiring which carries 
men on in tire face of trial, ad- 
r-ei-sity and temptation. It is tire 
thing which prompts them to cr>‘ 
out “Lord save me" in the hour 
of need. 

“The important thing for us,” 
declared the speaker, “is to keep 
ourselves in a state of readiness to 
call upon our Lord whenever the 
time should come. In the back¬ 
ground of everyone’s life the Mas¬ 
ter is waittng. Let us not look past 
Him.” 

During Ore Tuesday, Nov. 14. 
convocation, a Red Cross film was 
shown through the courtesy of the 
National Red Cross headquarters. 
New York City. The film, com¬ 
memorating national Red Cross 
week, told the story 'of the great 
Ohio river valley flood of a few 
years ago. 

Church Worship Discussed. 

“Church Worship” was the sub¬ 
ject discussed in convocation on 
Wetoesday, Nov. 15 by Theophile 
Doyen, Senior pre-tire student, 
who used Math. 21: 12-13 as a 
basis for his talk. 

“Going to church,’' said Mr. 
Doyen, “is a duty which every 
Christian owes to his Lord. Fur¬ 
thermore, he should do it in the 
right spirit, approaching God’s 
house with a prayerful, reverent 
attitude. He should quite whole 
heartedly unite in the liturgy 
which has been prepared with the 
idea of luriting a congregation in 
worship.” 

The Lutheran idea of worship 
was defined by the speaker as an 
acceptance of God’s gifts through

Hiltner Talks on Friendship. 

On Monday. Nov. 20, Dr. J. | 
Hiltner, con\'Ocation chairman and: 
head of tlie philosophy depaj't- 

nt, addressed the student body 
“Friendship”, using Proverbs 
17 as a basis for his remarks., 

‘Life is made or marred when 
youth selects its friends,” said Dr. 
Hiltner. “Wiat kind of friends do 
you liave? Where did you find 
them—in a tavern, on a dance 
floor, or in churcli or Luther 
league?” 

'Luther leagues have often been 
called matrimonial bureaus, but, 
marriages traced back to them are 
lasting because they are based on 
a common ideal, Test your friend¬ 
ship by your common intei-ests.” 

Finally Dr. Hiltner pointed out 
the supreme test of friendship 
demonsrated by Jesus in his %vill- 
ingness to die for us. 

Dean of Sheriffs Speaks. 

Mr. M. T. Wagner, sheriff of] 
black Hawk county and dean of] 
Iowa sheriffs addressed the con¬ 
vocation assembly on “Law Viola- 

an" on Tuesday, Nov. 21. 

Statistics showing a fast in¬ 
creasing crime rate and a steady 
decrease in the average age of 
criminals were presented by the 
speaker as a challenge for the fu- 
to college students, the citi- 
_ of tomorrow. Education,- re¬ 
ligion, and home training are fac¬ 
tors which might be responsible, 
but most often home training has 
been at fault. 

“Our own heritage" declared 
the sheriff, “must not be taken too 
much for granted. Our forefathers 
paid for it in blood. Let us pre¬ 
serve it for our children.” 

As a personal safeguard, Mr. 
Wagner suggested basing all con¬ 
duct on two considerations: (1) 
Will my actions stand the scrutiny 
of my parents and of the world? 
and (21 Would I have my son or 
daughter- do this? 

Keep America Out of War. 

In the absence of the scheduled 
speaker on Wednesday, Nov. 22, 
Dr. Hiltner reviewed parts of 
Kirby Page’s “How to Keep 
America Out of War.” emphasiz¬ 
ing the fact that churches mus 
be persuaded'to renounce war. 

“The way of the cross,” quoted 
Dr. Hiltner, “is utterly irreconcil- 
iable with way of the sword. If 
premeditated planning to perpe¬ 
tuate the atrocities of war is not 
a violation of Jesus' way of life, 
then no method of resisting ag¬ 
gression and tyranny can be con¬ 
trary to that way.” 

“The least that the churches can 
do is renounce war without quali¬ 
fication and refuse ever again to 
approve or support it in

CHEM LAB 

Kimball Assists vSwensen 
in Classes and Out. 


By Faylhe Brooks 
If the truth were known to all 
of us, I \think we should find out 
that tliere are more of those fol¬ 
lows who “sweep the floors and 
wash the dishes” in the laborator¬ 
ies around our school than we, at 
hi'st thought, would believe. An¬ 
other one is brought to tho ligirt 
in the person of Wayne Kimball, 
He is one of the assistants in the 
chemisti-y laboratory. Besides his 
cleaning jobs, at which he spends 
hour each day, he holds eight 


Gross, enpt.; Marjorie Rcaiidon, confevence periods each week to 

---- students with thoir clDss 

and experimental work. He often¬ 
times takes over lab periods in the 
absence of Professor Swensen. and 
has been known to have charge of 
tl)e Iwtuve hour. 

To those of us who know little 
about chemistry, a glimpse into 
the lab reveals little more than a 
host of bottles labeled “CHO” 
“XYZ", ETC.; and complicated 
apparatus on several long tables. 
But on closer observation we find 
a- number of things of interest. 
For instance, Mr. Kimball point¬ 
ed out that there are five analyt¬ 
ical balances in the lab, each of 
which is so delicate that it will 
weigh as small an amount as 
1-10,000 of a gram. On these it is 
a very simple matter to find the 
weight of one’s initials written on 
a piece of paper. Mr. Swensen has 
ip an apparatus with which he 
analyze blood samples to de¬ 
termine the alcohol content tliere- 
in. We were given an idea as to 
how this is used a very short time 
ago in an illustrated lecture in 
convocation.

activities and gifts. 

3. To develop healthy social 

life and strong Christian i 
friendships. [ 

4. To develop a conscious need 
of Christ in facing'modern' 
life and modern problems. ; 

II. To hold intercollegiate con-1 
ferences in order to assist stu¬ 
dents on every campus to ac¬

Youth cannot in its dreaming rest;

And all else that he can.

Margaret 

The story of the life of Miss 
Margaret Wachnitz reads like a 
novel. Music, travel. European 
places with romantic-sounding 
names, arrest and imprisonment 
of a close relative—don’t these 
sound like the elements that go t« 
i^ke up a modern book of fic¬ 
tion? This isn't fiction, however 
-it is biography. 

Margaret was bom in St. Pet¬ 
ersburg. Russia, the daughter of 
two music-lovers, both graduate.'- 
of the Conservatory of Music a 
Leipzig. Prof. Wachnitz was ar. 
instructor in piano, pipe organ, 
and theory coui-ses in harmony 
Little Margaret received musical 
training and became very fond of 
it- She still plays the piano, al¬ 
though she gave up formal music 
lessons at the age of 15. Hei 
musical background is evidenced, 
however, by her great love of 
symphonic music and delight i 
opera. One of her most memor 
, able experiences in music wa 
' being able to witness Wagner’s 
“Gottei'dammerung’’. produced by 
a famous German company. 

Knows Horror of War 
Wlien Margaret was a little girl, 
disaster suddenly struck the fam¬ 
ily of three. Tlie World War of 
1914-1918 broke out and os Rus¬ 
sia and Germany were in conflict 
all Germans residing in Russia 
were looked upon with suspicion. 
Margai-et’s father was one of 
Uiest- suspects. Just to make sure, 
he would have no chance of act-; 
ing as a German spy, he was ar¬ 
rested and sent to Siberia. Dm-- 
ing this interval of sevei-al yeare. 
Margaret and her motlier resided 
in Bessarabia, Russia. 

Shortly before he was schedul¬ 
ed to be released, her fatlier made 
his escape from Siberia, rejoined 
his family and moved to Germany 
't was in Germany that Margq- 
... received her first academic 
education. Her father made a 
U’ip to America while Margaret 
and her motlier toured Switzer¬ 
land. Of course. Margaret was of 
school age and where\'er she 
went, she attended school. Short¬ 
ly thereafter. Mr. Wachnitz sent 
for ills family and they ware re¬ 
united in America. Here Margar¬ 
et received her first taste of 
American education. 

Mrs. Wachnitz was compelled to 
return to Roumania on business 


her parents since the war started 
She says that most of them are 
sent by air mail, but even then 
they are somewhat delayed. Air 
mail letters are supposed to reach 
Iowa fi'om Germany in four or

If they are sent by regular postal

CAPTAIN KAPP 
HEADS KNIGHT 
BASKETBALLERS 

By Jim Hughes 

Bill Kappmeyer, that crafty 
eager from Oelwein, Iowa, who 
has roamed the Wartburg basket- 
rt for the post three ssas- 
the captain of the 1939 
Knight cagers. Captain Bill 
stands six feet, one inch, weigh- 
180 pounds and moves unusu¬ 
ally fast on the hardwood courts. 

He loves basketball and gives all 
he has to make the Knights _a 
better team. 

"Kapp" came to Wartburg fresh 
from his conquests while in high 
school, and heralded as a neat 
shifty guard. He lived up to 
expectations and broke into 
Wartburg varsity in his first year 
as a freshman. Scoring 91 points 
in his initial year as u Knighf, 

Bill held down a guard post and 
proved his ability as a defensive 
player. Inexperienced 
in collegiate basketball. Captain 
“Kapp" played steadily and cooly 
this fine characteristic being a 
great asset to Bill throughout his 
college playing days. When a 
sophomore, Bill devoted most of 
his time to his defensive play, al¬ 
though he rammed in 63 points tc 
help the offensive cause along. In 
his second year he was used at 

his customary guard position and H'lDCT' T 

also showed up well in the cen- J/lfViijl J1./J[111 jL( 
ter position, where his height 
could be used to best advantage. 

The junior ^ear for Bill found 
him a highly polished player, both 
offensively and defensively. Ke 
hit the hoop for 104 points and 
was Wartburg's second leading 
scorer. For his efforts in his jun¬ 
ior year, Kapp recived honorable 
mention on the Des Moines Reg¬ 
ister's all-conference team. A1 
in all, Captain Bill has scored 260 
points in his first three campaigns 
and has held up his defensive po¬ 
sition in remarkable fashion. 

Kapp's big year is here. It 
practice he has been showing 
plenty of speed and aggressive¬ 
ness and is hoping to reach great¬ 
er heights than before on the bas¬ 
ketball floor. Wlten asked what 
he thought of this year's squad 
as a whole, he resi>onded 
squad in a general sense is quite 
small but very speedy. In his es¬ 
timation the squad has average 
talent but should develop

Ontke is working for a guard ^-

capacity last year, and was re¬

on the campus, and by no stretch 
of the imagination is he any slow¬

A' smaller and a little less

-Jimmy Miersen, sophomore for¬ 
ward, who started his intercolleg¬ 
iate basketball career with a bang. 
He was high scorer in his first 
game, and, to all appearances, 
will cause plenty of trouble to his 
adversaries this year. Jimmy is 
especially "hot" on surprise long 
shots. He was credited with a
